Wood Beams in an Open-Plan Mediterranean Kitchen

Warm and rich, Mediterranean style finds its inspiration in the intense colors of nature: the blues, yellows and greens of sun and sea. When it comes to materials, Mediterranean kitchens tend toward natural ones. Hardwood floors are common, usually in lighter shades to continue a light, bright and welcoming feel. Earthy terra-cotta floor tiles and handpainted tile backsplashes; rustic, textured walls; stone; and accents of wrought iron and dark wood define this engaging, timeless look.

Here, a low peninsula countertop serves as the boundary between this luxury kitchen and an adjacent living room. Ceiling beams are one feature of a Mediterranean kitchen, and in this one, help accentuate the high ceilings.
